Only 150 years ago, about a quarter of the Hague population resided in courtyards. With more than 100 hidden courtyards scattered all over the city, The Hague may justifiably call itself the ‘court-capital’ of the country.

Today, these are the almost forgotten oases of peace and of tranquillity of the busy inner city. Book a tour guide to show you the best-known and most beautiful courtyards. Hidden treasures, hard to spot from the city streets.
